Kindness Speaks

Posted on: January 27th, 2020 by Parkwood Seniors Community

You could see, feel and hear the kindness of Parkwood staff at the “Kindness Speaks!” training sessions this past Thursday, January 23rd and Tuesday, January 28th.

As part of our ongoing initiatives to grow our positive workplace culture, our Mentor team presented the four foundations: We are Innately Kind, Kindness is Good for You, Cultivate a Kind Character and Everyone is a Leader.
Everyone has their own unique brand of kindness that is contagious. It may be that colleague who always has a smile on their face or the person who never fails to lend a hand when things get busy. Now we know our own strengths in the attributes of kindness. We can strengthen ourselves and support each other by having the courage to call on team members to “Stay above the waterline!” or the compassion to include a new team member on a lunch break.

Kindness invites us to consciously pause, reflect and adjust our interactions, asking in any situation, “What would kindness do?” When we practice focusing on the positive, being grateful for what we have and affirming the good in others, we are leaders in a way that inspires others and shows we care about them.

Thank you to all who participated for listening, sharing and contributing your ideas. Parkwood is committed to fostering a culture of Kindness.  We practice kindness to self, colleagues and community.  As part of our vision, we need to look inward to develop our own capacities in order to share them with others.  In the months and years to come, we will extend these opportunities to learn and grow to our volunteers, partners, families and the larger community.  We can’t do this alone.  We are all in this together!
